Delightful. My grandmother used to make doilies, now I wish I had a couple so I could use them to make a wonderful mini quilt. What a wonderful way to display something so precious.

Wonderful. Did you sew the solid on or what? I ask because I cannot see any stitches.

Great re-purposing of a vintage doily! Love the contrast of the doily against the brown fabric and the large stitching surrounding the doily. Thanks for sharing.
